A Call to Retry Jesus

Posted:

A lawyer and former spokesman for the judiciary of Kenya filed a petition in July with the International Court of Justice in The Hague, Netherlands, seeking a retrial of Jesus Christ and naming as defendants the state of Israel, King Herod, various Jewish elders, the former emperor of Rome (Tiberius) and, of course, Pontius Pilate. Dola Indidis claims the proceedings before Roman courts did not conform to the rule of law at the time. (Indidis' claim had been dismissed by the High Court in Nairobi; an ICJ spokesperson said the court has no jurisdiction in such a case, for it's not one between governments.)
